Superyacht focus for Málaga redevelopment SPAIN: Island Global Yachting (IGY) is to expand further into the Mediterranean by introducing a new superyacht marina in Puerto de Málaga (right). In partnership with Ocean Capital Partners, IGY is redeveloping the existing marina and infrastructure to serve the world’s largest superyachts, as well as other vessels seeking to enjoy the town’s convenient and vibrant location. IGY will be both an equity holder and the management and brand partner to the marina, and expects to start operation in spring this year. The marina will be known as IGY Málaga Marina. Málaga’s strategic location east of Gibraltar offers the global superyacht fleet the perfect destination for private use or charter vessels. Well located to support vessels in the western Mediterranean, and an ideal winter haven with year-round berthing, it is also a convenient destination for vessels to prepare for trans-Atlantic crossings. Málaga Airport offers international flights and is just 20 minutes away. The Málaga marina is the third in IGY’s western Mediterranean network, joining IGY’s purpose-built marina in Sète, south of France, and Porto Cervo Marina in Sardinia.
